Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Right now in your life…are you surrounded by people who lift you up or bring you down? Take a moment to think about those you speak to and see the most… your co-workers, friends, kids, family, mate, neighbors, parents… Do they let you be you? Do they help you ALIGN with your life’s purpose? Do they help you increase your joy? And what about you? Do you create this support for those around you? Are you a beacon for others’ authenticity or do you want to mold people into what you want them to be, so that they embrace the safe, happy, appropriate life you envision for them? Hmmmm?

REALLY EASY right now to get defensive and pull back. That is an option but one that shuts down the learning flow. Just for a moment, even if you are feeling “icky”, stay in that icky vibe. Let it process through you and then release it. In the end we are all doing the best we can with what we know and as Maya Angelou says when we know better we do better! 🙂

I’m realizing that I do this a lot with people closest to me. I have an idea of what would keep them safe and I hold that for them. I am WAY better at releasing this than I used to be, still it’s a journey. Noticing when I do it. Why notice it? Well, it’s the only way to release it. This is simply another form of JUDGING. Not so many generations ago this was how people survived, but things are different now. Judgment is a FORM OF FEAR. It leaks your vital energy out from your energetic container. People who do the deepest, most effective type of energy work are strongly disciplined in *Cleaning *Filling and *Protecting their energy container for the more that is done, the more intuition hits you get, the more you can hear your guides.

Yesterday was my very first ButterflyMoms Workshop in the Europe! It felt AWESOME!!! This time it was HOW TO BUILD YOUR INTUITION…They learned how to maintain their energetic containers and even did some visualization exercises. We also incorporated the power of the ocean as it was our glorious view for the workshop. It felt WUNDERBAH that although I’ve only been here a short time, that it was rainy and that I only booked it less than a week ago, I had four people from all over the world enthusiastically show up! I love that I am living my dream of BEING THE FIRE THAT IGNITES PEOPLE’s SOUL!!!! Be careful… it’s VERY CONTAGIOUS!!!!


During the workshop I told the story of when I was living in San Francisco and had really risen in the ranks of speakers to the point where I was a keynote speaker. I was doing a keynote address to a group of almost 1,000 people. Afterwards, even though 30 people had lined up to congratulate me and thank me, I disregarded what they said and listened instead to a man who yelled at me for doing the worst job as a speaker that he has ever seen. I literally let it affect me so deeply that I stopped speaking in public… for years.

Energetically speaking I had not worked on the maintenance of my energetic container. It was weak and he ruptured it. That would never happen today because I now better understand the laws of energy. It was a painful lesson but also a really important one for me…and now you get the benefits so that you don’t have to necessarily go through the same pain.

Great big hugs,

Mialotta talking to Isabel and Fiona.

ButterflyMoms is a community of people who realize they are souls first and human being second. They want to explore more about themselves, to find out what makes them happy and how they can lead a life of purpose. It is simply about FEEDING YOUR SOUL. Although it has the name “MOMS” in the title it is more about being nurturing to your own transformation, as the butterfly is to its own metamorphosis. This community is led by Maria Salomão-Schmidt whose transformation was ignited by the birth and death of her BELOVED thirteen month old daughter Sophia (Sophalicious), the original butterfly.

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul,


Mialotta takes part in the performance with the amazing group director José Marques in Lisboa.

Maria writes the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.


Tell your friends… and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!


  1. Wonderfully written once again. Thanks for sharing. You do a really great job of helping others to connect back to themselves.

  2. Perfect timing for this topic as I interact with lots of family right now. Just remembering to breathe 🙂

  3. Hello Maria great to have you around … you are like a bit of sunshine on a cloudy day. Love Zé

  4. As I’ve grown a little older (and wiser), I’m more selective with those whom I spend my time. Life is short, why get sucked into rubbish? It does take a while to harness that intuition, but I’m grateful for it. And as a writer, I have to remind myself that just because one person isn’t keen on my stuff, so what? I am grateful now for those painful lessons of the past. A great big hug to you!! 🙂

  5. Hello Milu
    You are sooo special! I really admire your energy and good work. Do not change, you are an inspiration mother. Merry Christmas to all of you. Love Alda
